I KNOW I haven’t done 50 of these, but here’s just a few more things you just NEED to know about me.

Do you have a signature dish? If not is their one in your family?

I am not the cook of the house.  I have no signature dish.  I don’t even have a consistent signature.  (Does anyone?) Jeff is the cook/baker.  I’d say his signature dish is his potatoes au gratin.  Just what these hips need.  Right?

Do you have a favorite board game?



Is there a household chore that you enjoy?

Chore and Enjoy don’t go together in a sentence.  So no!

 What is one thing you will never care about?

I don’t really know.  I’m a worrier and slightly (ahem) insecure, so I care about EVERYTHING!  (I really tried to think of something, but everything I thought of just made me say, “No, I care about that.” and  “Nope.  I really do care about that.” So If I think of anything, I’ll let you know.  If YOU care about that.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?  236

I’m grateful that our dog, Rocky, is doing better after his operation.  In the week to come I’m looking forward to more good news about his biopsy.  (Don’t worry.  He’s a trooper.)

Come play along with Cee here.  Share YOUR world…




Warmth.  The unconditional love of a dog.

This is Rocky.  He’s 11 years old.  We think he’s a love, but if you came to our front door, you might not agree.  He’s very protective, to say the least. But he is also very devoted, caring, and VERY sweet – once you get to know him.  😉


Rocky is literally a junk yard dog.  We found him in Camden, NJ, yes, in a junk yard.  His dad was a giant of a dog, and very laid back.  His mom, not so much.  I don’t know if she was upset because someone was ogling her babies, or if she was just plain ornery, but she had one unpleasant disposition.  But Rocky was fluffy and little and cute and covered in ticks!  But that didn’t matter.  I fell in love.  So Rocky came home with us.   I spent some painstaking hours, over the next couple of days, cleaning him up.  And he cleaned up nice.  Now Rock gives us all the love he can muster.

He is chock full of warmth.

A week ago, Rocky had an operation.  Things appear to have gone well, but we’re not out of the woods yet, so keep your fingers crossed.

Love, caring, snuggles, and wet pup kisses.  He’s what “warmth” means to me.  

Hoping you all ring in the new year with some warm snuggles too.  Happy Holidays.
